Covid-19 effect: Vehicle sales down by 90% in Ghaziabad in three months | Ghaziabad News

GHAZIABAD: The ongoing coronavirus-induced lockdown has hit all sectors badly, including the automobile sector.
The sale of vehicles has dropped to an all time low in the past three months. As per the data provided by Ghaziabad’s regional transport office, registrations of vehicles fell to 600 from 7,000 in a span of just three months-from March to May.
Registration of two-wheelers at regional transport office in March was 4,686 and in May it registered only 288 bikes and scooters.
“The sale of two-wheelers in March was 4,686 while in April it was 2,093 and in May, it further fell to just 288,” said Ram Ratan Soni, regional transport officer.
Similarly, in March, under the private motor car category, 1,473 vehicles were registered with Ghaziabad RTO and in April and May, total vehicles under this category fell to 284 and 288 respectively.
“Under commercial cab category, 93 vehicles were registered in March which fell to 31 in April and 12 in May,” added Soni.
There are 19 types of vehicles that get registered with the RTO which includes agriculture tractors, buses, maxi cabs, e-rikshaws. But by May, there weren’t any registrations in 12 categories.
“In May, there were no sale of buses, construction equipment vehicles, goods carriers and and passenger three-wheelers,” added Soni.
This has led to drastic revenue loss to the government as well.
“In February, we manged to achieve 90% of target set by the state government through registration of vehicles which comes to around Rs 33 crore in February and by May we were able to achieve only 12% of the target which was about Rs 4 crore,” said Soni.
